Title: Wild Mustard in Soybeans and Sunflower
Author: Collins, Donavon M.; Berglund, Duane R.; Nalewaja, John D.
Description: Wild mustard was been a pest to North Dakota crops for over 100 years at this writing. Wild mustard is highly competitive with wheat. Wild mustard at 42 plants per square yard resulted in a 30% wheat loss. Wild mustard is effectively controlled in wheat and other cereal grains by treatment with 2,4-D. However, it's control in sunflower was then limited to pre-emergence chloamben. Information on the losses form wild mustard competition in sunflower and soybeans would provide a basis for the determination of the economic benefit from various control practices. As the result. research was conducted to determine the influence of various wild mustard infestations in soybean and in sunflowers. The results from these research studies are reviewed here. The reults of these experiment experiments indicate the potential soybean and sunflower yield losses from various wild mustard infestations. The magnitude of the loss from a given mustard density will vary with the environmental conditions and cultural production practices.
